DHL Express has announced a major modernization of its European air fleet to increase efficiency and reduce emissions. The company has committed to the purchase of 13 Airbus A300-600 passenger aircraft, which will be converted to freighter configuration by EADS Elbe Flugzeugwerke in Dresden, Germany. The first aircraft is scheduled to enter the conversion line in early June, with arrival at DHL’s Leipzig Hub planned for October. The new aircraft will be fully integrated into the European fleet by early 2013 and will replace the older A300-B4-200 model, which is nearing retirement age.
